Guidance Note: Data for Implementation and Monitoring of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
This Guidance Note aims to provide UNDP country offices with policy directions and indicative activities for coherent and coordinated support for data and statistics for sustainable development. It further aims to provide an understanding of the current Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators and reporting processes at the global, regional, national and local levels, and to help facilitate consistency and coherence across these levels of follow-up and review. The note explores options for aligning the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda with national monitoring and evaluation frameworks, prioritizing SDG indicators for national monitoring, strengthening national statistical capacities, and leveraging partnerships and innovations.
It is a living document that will be continuously refined with feedback, lessons-learned and case studies from ongoing efforts to support integrated approaches to SDG implementation and reporting at national level, and scaling up of data innovations.
